    These vases pop up a bit here in Australia, and I have seen them also for sale in the UK and USA. Surprisingly, I have seen them sometimes attributed to Holmegaard, and more often to Scandinavia in general.
    I have no idea why, except maybe the colour, and think it's one of those false attributions promulgated by the internet.
    Clearly, it's not Scandinavian, and actually carries the very Murano like label that says nothing about origin. This label is now known to be import company in origin, although I don't think it's possible to nail it down to a particular company.
    As vases go, it's a nice enough thing with it's three bubble base (is that the Holmegaard guess?) and rolled rim.

      The vase reminds the ones produced in Zabkowice glassworks ,Poland.Many features are similar:three lobed body with a polished bottom,rolled rim,colour,however not all of them appear in one item.Some of their production was exported to Australia ond other countries under the name of Beverly Crystal.I sometimes have a strongly feeling they might be Polish but,of course that's just feeling.

      Very interesting, Karen. I do wonder why a company would choose such a label.....do you have any views on age?

      Wow I've been waiting for the day I could get out of the newbie collector status and find something I actually might be able to help with.I have a similar vase that's long like this made of clear and frosted glass with the exact same sticker.It has the crown and genuine hand blown on it.The only difference is it has the name Imperlux on the top of the crown.I've got to go tell my wife I'm an expert now.

      Ahh, missed heaps of replies here! Thanks for the comments and ideas guys.
      I think this is 1970s, possibly from Japan, but not properly IDed yet.

      Jim, the Imperlux name is very helpful. I know they were an import company and got lots in from Japan, so that's a real lead, you little nascent expert! Thanks!!
